Windows & Mirrors 2018

The New England Children’s Booksellers Advisory Council is a voluntary organization dedicated to excellence in independent children’s bookselling.  The NECBA Windows and Mirrors list aims to highlight diverse titles that might otherwise be overlooked, showcasing titles that explore a breadth of human experience beyond our societal “defaults.” In this way, we hope to serve all the young readers who visit our stores, providing windows and mirrors through books that will expand and enrich their worlds.

The concept of children’s books as “windows and mirrors” is simple: that children’s literature should contain diverse characters and experiences such that all children can find representations of their own experiences and identities (“mirrors”), and be exposed to many experiences and identities of people unlike themselves (“windows”).
